With its all-white walls, furniture, and floors, cushy white furniture, and soothing fountain, Exquisite Salon and Spa makes clients feel relaxed as soon as they walk through the door. The all-white nail area looks especially pristine during the daytime, when bright sunlight floods in through the windows, illuminating nail tech Sofia as she grooms hands and feet.
During pedicures, clients settle into the white pedicure chairs before Sofia places a plush purple blanket in their laps. She then gets to work, filing toenails, pushing down cuticles, and swiping on bright coats of polish. Optional shellac nail polish helps mani-pedis stay chip-free for up to 14 days.
A quaint salon located in Littleton's historic downtown, Tease Hair Salon blends small-town charm with big-city style. Tease is operated by new salon owners and is a Paul Mitchell Focus salon. The technicians are trained and attend monthly Paul Mitchell classes so as to stay apace of the latest techniques and trends. That way, regardless of whether a client requests a classic cut or a modern look they've seen in the latest celeb magazine, the stylists can accommodate them. Services include haircuts, coloring, and keratin straightening, as well as mani-pedis and bridal styling for those attending their arch nemesis' wedding.
Nicole Mayoros is a stylist who cuts down unruly hair at Sola Salon Studios. She deftly snips away excess strands into eye-catching new dos complete with conditioning treatments and color treatments such as partial or full highlights.
Flawless skin, rosy cheeks, and red lips are the trademark of the vintage pin-up girl. Inspired by this classic look, the trio of licensed aestheticians at Sweet Cheeks Boutique paint faces with Jane Iredale makeup products, but without clogging pores. As they apply micro-pulverized minerals and pigments to the skin, flat overlapping particles allow pores to breathe while deflecting environmental pollutants such as exhaust fumes and jealousy. The aestheticians also buttress their makeup applications with skin-care treatments that range from gentle facials and waxing to on-site Botox injections.
Aestheticians specialize in depilating and decorating the nether regions, working in private treatment rooms lined with marble counters. Photos of hairless cats hang on the walls in cheeky commentary as aestheticians use lasers, electrolysis, and sugaring?a gentle, unheated medium?to remove unwanted fuzz. Clients can choose from an array of modified Brazilians to customize their looks, which they can also do with the help of hair tinting, temporary tattoos, vadazzling. Other services include facial peels, microdermabrasions, photo facials, and spray tans. Each of the Studio's treatments are administered under the supervision of Dr. Ken Oleszek, who emphasizes clients' safety.
